Canyoning: Wool or thermals to wear underneath the wetsuit. Do not wear cotton, sweaters or jeans. Wool socks and a pair running shoes. Bring a dry change of clothes and a towel if you want to shower after the trip. Participants should bring a packed lunch, and we provide hot and cold drinks. Due to the logistics, participants may be responsible for their own transport to the canyon.
Via Ferrata: Appropriate clothes according to the weather. Sneakers/ running shoes, a small backpack with snacks and 1,5 litres of water per person.

Where is Heidal Rafting located?
Address and meeting point for activities: Åmotsvegen 79, 2670 Otta. (Sjoa, 10 minutes south of Otta)
I am a plus-size adventurer and I have some physical limitations, can I still join in on activities?
To ensure that we can accommodate your needs, we recommend contacting us before booking your trip so that we can discuss your situation in advance. By gaining a better understanding of your circumstances, we can make all the necessary preparations.
Will Heidal Rafting cancel activities if it rains?
No, you will get wet anyway! It is great to be on the river in the rain and you can save the sunny days for a hike in the mountains (of which there are many in the area).
It depends on the amount of rain, so please call reception to check.
Can we bring alcohol with us? Or be under the influence?
After the activity, we have licenced areas where we sell alcohol. Outside of these areas you are allowed to bring alcohol with you.

How do I book an activity?
I am scared of heights, but can I do the Via Ferrata?
The wire bridge is at the top of the Via Ferrata, and is optional. So if it is not for you, you can sit back, relax and enjoy watching your friends cross the bridge instead.
